Made it....FINALLY!

We made it safe and sound to Minnesota late or should I say very early Friday morning. It was the most uncomfortable and exhausting trip we have made...and we have done this a lot! I just keep thinking to myself that we still have to go back! ;) But no need to dwell on that now...for now I am just enjoying relaxing and doing everything I can with my family that I've missed so much. It is crazy how much people or things change in 7 months of not seeing them! Not to mention my niece! Omgosh has she grown up...she is 4 going on 13 it seems and I just have to look at her and wonder where the time went? She was so happy to see me and she is to the point where she finally understands where I am at and why I don't get to see her very often, but it is good that when I come home we pick up right where we left off! I have yet to see my nephew, but I can only imagine how much he has changed too...I can't wait to see him! I have nothing major planned while being home besides the baby shower that will be next week, that will be good to see all the family and play catch up. Lucas is up north right now for a week with his Dad's family having fun at a cabin...wish I could be there, but I'm enjoying this time! Never thought I would miss this place so much! ;)

Leaving For MN

Lucas and I (and the dogs) are embarking on another road trip adventure to Minnesota at least this time we don't have to worry about the snow element and wrecking the car! It has been so long since we have seen everyone, since January, and it will be really nice to see everyone. Even though I know it will go by so fast, it always does, I am going to do as much as I can with everyone. Not to mention I can not wait for my baby shower to see all the my friends and family I don't get to see very often! It should be a good time! So here we go again, see everyone in a couple days!

And We Are Having A......

Beautiful, healthy, little girl! We all knew in the back of our minds that it was a girl, but it was a shock all at the same time and confirmation that this all is real! I still feels so surreal to me, but it was amazing to see her during the ultrasound squirming around and seeing how big she has gotten! It was hard not to get emotional, but I fought it back, but have been really emotional all day. I feel this missing piece is finally filled in and I know that Lucas is going to be an amazing father to this little girl. I just can't wait to hold, kiss and love her and show her to the world. Ohhh here come the water works!
The doctor said everything looked good, she is healthy and very active. I will have to post the 4 ultrasound pictures once I get them scanned. We have a named picked out already, but not a full name yet as we haven't decided on the middle name...any suggestions? So we are all excited and congrats to the happy grandparents out there! Can't wait to see you all very soon!
